Pineberry white strawberry

The second name for strawberries is white pineapple. The remontant variety was bred in Holland by crossing Chilean and Virginia strawberries. A small compact bush no more than 30 cm in height, produces medium-sized berries - up to 23 mm. There are usually few berries, so to increase the yield it is necessary to plant more bushes. White Strawberry - Pineberry has a very delicate texture and a juicy, sweet flavor with a distinct pineapple flavor. The fruits are white, sometimes with an orange tint. There are red or brown seeds throughout the surface of the berries. The plant can grow in one place for up to 5 years and does not require replanting.

The heat-loving plant prefers greenhouse conditions most of all. A dry and warm place is ideal conditions for obtaining a high yield. The variety is very sensitive to excess moisture, so watering should be done regularly, but not overdoing it. If the berries are exposed to the sun during ripening, they may acquire a pinkish tint. Before planting, you need to make sure that the pH of the soil does not exceed 6.5. Fertilizers should be a mixture of organic matter and minerals at the rate of 5 kg per 40 g per 1 sq. m. m. To grow this variety on the site, you need to purchase seedlings, since this hybrid species does not reproduce by seeds.

The depth of the hole for seedlings should be about 10 cm; you need to focus on the length of the root system. 0.5 liters of water is poured into the hole and the plant is seated with its roots carefully straightened. Then carefully sprinkle with soil so that the heart is at ground level. The distance between the bushes should not be close, as the strawberries will grow and need more space. The variety is resistant to many diseases and cold, is self-fertile and gets along well with other varieties.

Remontant strawberry, with the smell and taste of pineapple. It begins to bloom in May, and the first fruits appear in June and are green. Gradually, as the berries ripen, they become white, sometimes with a slightly pink tint. The seeds, strewn throughout the fruit, acquire a dark red hue, which indicates the ripeness of the berries. Medium sized fruits. Strawberry White Dream is a French variety with a characteristic sweet taste of strawberry and pineapple. The bushes are compact, with an average amount of foliage. Seedlings should be planted in dry, warm soil; it is better if it is not in the open air, but in a greenhouse.

Plants must be planted 30 cm apart from each other to ensure maximum development without cramped conditions. Watering difficulties may arise, as with many strawberry varieties. Regular watering may not be enough if the soil does not absorb and retain moisture well. Due to the fibrous root system, the seedlings may not have enough moisture and die. To improve watering, you can resort to the drip method, which will allow water to be supplied directly to the roots. This will require narrow but fairly deep tubes, the ends of which will reach the roots. Strawberries require frequent feeding, without which it will not be possible to get a large harvest. The variety has good disease resistance and tolerates temperature changes and hot climates well.

White Polish strawberries

Remontant variety, which has a second name - Pineapple. The variety belongs to the Polish selection and produces large berries of 60 grams. faintly pink. The surface of the berries is uneven. White Polish strawberries have mixed flavor characteristics of wild strawberries and pineapple. There is practically no sourness. It begins to bear fruit in mid-May. The second fruiting occurs in late September - early October. The bushes have medium height and many leaves. There is a lot of mustache that needs to be trimmed. If you plan to propagate with mustaches, it is better to plant several bushes separately exclusively for propagation, allowing the mustache to grow. The variety is resistant to diseases and temperature changes. Sometimes it can be affected by spotting. Following the rules of care will allow you to avoid this and get a good harvest from healthy plants.

White strawberry Ruby

Variety obtained by crossing in Russia. For its creation, the main parameters were the preservation of winter hardiness and drought resistance. Of course, we are not talking about strawberries overwintering under snow in the harsh Siberian winter. However, in the middle zone, the berries are quite capable of producing a good harvest. In the northern regions, it is not possible to plant berries too early, since the soil has not yet warmed up enough. Therefore, late varieties remain the most popular. Valuable plants are obtained from geographically distant varieties for crossing. White Ruby strawberries are specially adapted for short daylight hours.

Mid-early variety in terms of ripening, but despite this, the berries do not lag behind each other, but ripen at the same time. The bushes are compact, of medium height with a moderate number of leaves. Peduncles are located below the level of leaves. Medium sized berries, about 20 grams. They have a canonical shape with a slight shiny tint. The berries separate easily. Dark-colored seeds are densely scattered over the entire surface of the berries. The fruits have a rich, juicy wild strawberry taste, not sour. They have a dense texture, thanks to which they can be successfully transported over any distance, maintaining their presentation.

The yield of this variety is average and largely depends on quality care: timely watering, fertilizing and place of growth. Under favorable conditions, the variety is capable of producing a yield of 0.5 to 1 kg per bush. It is best to plant bushes, as well as transplant them to another place, in August. If you do this in the spring, you can expect a harvest by next year. To increase yield, it is necessary to process the tendrils.

This variety has very large rosettes, which significantly complicate the formation of fruits. They need to be planted and excess tendrils trimmed. This way the plant will have more strength and nutrients, which will be used to produce new berries. Strawberries will grow in one place for 3-4 years, after which they require replanting. Disease resistance is good, but it is necessary to carry out prevention against gray mold and mites. It resists cold and sudden temperature changes well. Requires careful watering, but is very sensitive to excess moisture. The soil should easily allow water to pass through to the roots and supply the plant with oxygen. Harvesting should take place immediately after ripening. Overripe berries do not survive on the bushes and lose their taste.
